What do you do with a dead snake plant?
A Snake Plant whose roots or leaves are too rotten to bounce back can still serve as the seed for new plants. You can cut away any healthy sections and plant them in new soil. After a while, they’ll grow new roots and foliage.
How do I get my snake plant to grow back?
The cut leaf should be at least 6 inches tall (taller leaves are even better). Place the cut end of the leaf in a jar or vase filled with 3 inches of water. Put the jar in a bright spot and refresh the water, rinsing out the jar, once a week. Roots should form at the base of the cutting in about two months.
Why is my snake plant dying at the roots?
Root Rot. The most commonly seen problem with Snake Plants is root rot, caused by overwatering, especially in the winter months. The roots then die back due to lack of oxygen or the overgrowth of a soil fungus.
